You can thank the BaTonga people of Zimbabwe for this interesting smoking innovation. Now gourds are for more than filling a cornucopia! The African BaTonga Gourd Pipe is handmade out of an actual gourd and is decorated by beaded art, made by Zulu tribeswomen. The artistry at the top of the chamber and bottom of the neck looks like a traditional necklace and gives the bong some pizzazz. A marble bowl is included with the bong, and it is deep enough for hefty packs. Considering these bongs are made out of gourds and grown on vines, their size and shape can vary. A traditional way of smoking, the third largest tribe in Zimbabwe began using gourds or as they call the device, Incelwa. Primitive Pipes is a bit more sophisticated yet still sticks to its roots. A silicone downstem reaches into the chamber to diffuse your smoke. Between the removable downstem and the beeswax lining, the African BaTonga Gourd Pipe from Primitive Pipes hits like a champ. DO NOT USE HOT WATER OR CHEMICALS WHEN CLEANING. This can result in the lining being stripped. Only clean with cold water. Bowl color varies.
This pipe features a deep bowl to allow for a large amount of dry herbs or tobacco to be packed at one time
A rubber ring with a hole in the center, which leads into the water pipe's main chamber. For use, a male bowl slide should be inserted into the center.
A downstem is a glass tube that allows smoke to travel from the joint to a chamber of a bong. Removable downstems provide multiple benefits as they filter smoke with their slits or holes while their removability allows for an easier cleaning process.
This item features a female joint. It will fit all male jointed pipes and accessories of the same size.
This item features a joint at a diagonal 45º angle. Use with other 45º pipes and accessories.
Bent neck designs offer aesthetic and functional qualities. Aesthetically, bent necks give a unique look to your glass water pipe. Functionally, bent necks act as a splashguard, keeping all of the water inside the pipe and outside of your mouth. They also extend the mouthpiece away from the heat source horizontally, providing a more safe position.

I recently puchased this piece because I couldnt not buy it. It looks amazing with my other weird nature pieces Ive picked up along my life. Hits just as nicely as it looks. Bowl is a little deep for single person use but is easily swapped out for a smaller one if needed. I HIGHLY RECCOMEND THIS PIECE. I do however want you to tell your vendors NOT to put the price tags on the outside finish as it takes the paint off with it. So much so that when it rubbed against a small piece of tape on something else in the bag that that part came off too when I got it home. Sad face. But its still really pretty even with bits missing.
